Concentric Communication

"When you are talking to a person in a ring smaller than yours, someone closer to the center of the crisis, the goal is to help. *******Listening is often more helpful than talking.******* But if you’re going to open your mouth, ask yourself if what you are about to say is likely to provide comfort and support. If it isn’t, don’t say it."

To this article I'll add, people who are in the surrounding rings do need the freedom to vent, be angry, cry, question and fall apart. The person in the center of the original "crisis", needs to focus on healing, not diverting energy into taking care of or protecting others during their affliction. I suggest members of the concentric circles also create this web for their own process, and the center-person of the original affliction should NOT be in any other person's ring without explicit consent.
